ion 7.9

by vanessa
(canada)

I bought the treadmill for 1,300 dollars, it was barely used the first 1 year and 1/2, finally wanted to use it, it worked great but as time went on the speed would slow down out of the blue from 4.0 to 1.0 and it won't go, i can get power and everything but now it won't start. I have emailed the place in the US, but i don't get a response from them. Not happy. Thinking about get circuit board for it, or just getting a eliptical, not sure what to do. So all in all not happy with the company, or the treadmill at that for failing so soon.

I had same problems 10 years ago
by: Anonymous

Have the same mill. When we first started using ours we had strange problems like you. I unplugged the treadmill and removed the plastic cover over the motor and then you will see the circuit board. The circuit board has a lot of push on electrical connections. I had to remove the connections and give them a squeeze with a pair of players so they would have a proper electrical connection.

Make sure they are all tight connections and none are loose. Put the cover back on plug in your machine and your problems will be solved. Mine is almost ten years old now and it still works fine. No more problems.

Moving Ion 7.9t
by: 66_mustang_6

Yes arms come off, then dash board. Unplug the dashboard at the white plug. Unbolt the 2 uprights and either strap the upright to the running deck or pull the cord out from it. Be sure to either take one bolt out of the lift shock for the running deck or strap the deck the to the from with the wheels on it or it will try to open when moving the unit.

Ion buttons
by: 66_mustang_6

Very common problem... easy fix with some double stick tape... issue is console buttons collapse and unit thinks you are pushing them.. If too many buttons do this then the treadmill will power on and you cant adjust your weight on the screen or get the unit to operate.
